Bill's Sausage Gravy

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2014
So easy & delicious! I used regular sausage instead of maple since that is what I had on hand, served on refrigerator biscuits for a quick and satisfying breakfast. Definitely recommend this recipe.

Lemon Curd

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2012
A perfect balance of tart and sweet, and so easy to make! I don't have a double-boiler, so I prepared this in a Pyrex bowl set over a pot of simmering water. I'd give this recipe ten stars if I could.

Strawberry Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2011
This made excellent muffins; filled the cups almost full & baked 25 minutes per batch (2 dozen muffins). I also used a full pound of berries. Definitely a winner!

No Roll Pie Crust I

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2011
Disappointing; oily and tough. I would not make this again.

Individual Baked Eggs

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2010
I'm in the minority here as I wasn't impressed with this at all. A rather bland dish, it's badly in need of some doctoring up; maybe scramble the egg a bit first so you don't have that hard-cooked yolk lump in the middle, add some green onion and black pepper to jazz things up. A dollop of salsa or sour cream after cooking would not be amiss either. My husband and I ended up peeling the bacon off, eating that & giving the rest to the dogs. All in all, this is not something I'm going to make again.

Roast Beef with Coffee

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2010
Neither my husband nor I cared for this recipe. The meat was dry and not very flavorful, and the gravy was just so-so. The ingredient list says to mince the garlic; the instructions say to use whole cloves. I cut the cloves into thirds and they did not cook through; they were crunchy and harsh-tasting. Not something I will make again.

Chewy Cocoa Brownies

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2010
I prefer a fudgier, chewier brownie than this recipe produces. I baked them for 18 minutes & I think that may have been a couple minutes too long. Next time I will try using leftover coffee instead of the water & vanilla.

Glazed Lemon Bundt Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 29, 2010
A mild citrus flavor to the cake is kicked up by the extremely lemony glaze. I didn't have any lemon extract so used orange extract instead; this is the only change I made to the recipe. No, I tell a lie, I also followed the advice of others and used sugar instead of flour when I greased the pan; it worked like a charm, and no white residue to boot. The next time I make it, I will use powdered sugar instead of granulated for the glaze, as it came out just a wee bit crunchy. This might also be good made with orange juice/zest, adjusting the sugar since oranges are sweeter than lemons.

Spicy Honey Mustard Pork Roast

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2010
Far too much pepper; my husband & I trimmed off the outside because we just couldn't eat it. The inside, however, was juicy & tender, very good indeed. Next time I make it I will reduce the pepper to about a teaspoon.

Spinach Strudels

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2010
Five stars for flavor, one star knocked down for how fussy these are to make. I think I was overly generous on the breadcrumbs & butter as I needed more than the recipe called for, and I was only using 5 sheets of phyllo as others have recommended. I prepped them on a sheet of foil & used that to help roll it up; waxed paper would probably have been a better choice although the foil worked well enough. Also, a fresh sheet for each roll-up would be good, as the foil got rather buttery & the outer sheet of phyllo stuck like a suction cup on the second roll-up. I will probably make these again although it's not going to be an everyday recipe for me.

Acorn Squash Slices

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2010
Absolutely delicious; slightly sweet, nutty, with a flavor reminiscent of pumpkin. The pecans added just the right touch. I had difficulty getting the squash slices cut evenly; next time I will cut it into chunks as others have suggested.

Simply Lemon Baked Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2010
Wow, really good, moist & flavorful. The drippings were very salty so I used a jarred gravy rather than making some with the juices. Definitely will be serving this one again.

Maple Salmon

Reviewed: May 31, 2010
This was OK, not something I'm likely to make again. The sauce might be better on pork or beef than on fish.

Easy Batter Fruit Cobbler

Reviewed: May 28, 2010
Simple and delicious. I followed the recipe without making any changes, using fresh nectarines & serving it with a dollop of French vanilla ice cream. The perfect summer dessert.

Pork Chop and Potato Casserole

Reviewed: May 16, 2010
My husband's response to the first bite of pork chop: "Mmmm. MMMMM. MMMMM!! Oh, my. . . " Definitely a winner here. Who would have thought something this simple could be so tasty? The recipe didn't specify, so I used red potatoes for this dish.

Swiss Cheese 'n' Onion Quiche

Reviewed: May 12, 2010
I'd give six stars if I could! A few ingredients, some simple prep work, and you've got a delicious quiche. I didn't make any changes to the recipe. Loved it!

Lemon Meringue Pie III

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2010
A wonderful dessert. I followed the advice of previous posters & did not cool the filling in the refrigerator prior to assembling the pie. I also added a little extra lemon juice so it was extra-tangy. My dad pronounced it "Perfect!"

Ground Beef Bar-b-que

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2010
Very tasty when served as a meat patty, however putting it on a bun with toppings wasn't so good. My husband thought red bell pepper rather than green would improve the flavor. I think this might be better baked into a meatloaf rather than grilled as a burger.

Baklava

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2010
My husband & I loved this! So easy, and unlike some baklavas I've had it's not sickly-sweet. I would add just a touch more cinnamon next time, though. Did I mention it's easy? ;-)
